Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

This week: Meet One of Hong Kong’s Last Neon Sign Makers and Learn Why LED Lights Haven’t Put Him Out of Business, Property Agent Who Sold HK$20 million Mid-Levels Flat Ended Up Sleeping Rough in Hong Kong and Man Arrested After Car Veers into Opposite Lane, Crashing into Truck and Roadside Railings in Hong Kong

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow American readers today. Always a strange feeling – even after 10 years – to celebrate holidays outside of my home country. But I’m with my loving wife and kids, so how can I complain (though they don’t know what Thanksgiving is!) I even recorded a podcast today – #thehustleneverstops – hope you are having a great end to the eleventh month of 2017!

Welcome to GFA Pulse #149

Meet One of Hong Kong’s Last Neon Sign Makers and Learn Why LED Lights Haven’t Put Him Out of Business
Despite the fact that we have been ruled by new technologies, Wu Chi-kai, one of the few neon light sign makers, has been optimistic that there are still people who need neon lights. In fact, today is the start of the festival of light in Hong Kong, showcasing the beauty of neon lights.

Property Agent Who Sold HK$20 million Mid-Levels Flat Ended Up Sleeping Rough in Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, a rough estimate of 1,600 are said to be homeless due to skyrocketing housing rent. Ka-hei (not his real name), a former real estate agent, ended up as one of the nomads in Hong Kong due to unfortunate circumstances. Life is really like a tire of a moving car, sometimes you’re on top and other times, you’re on the bottom.

Man Arrested After Car Veers into Opposite Lane, Crashing into Truck and Roadside Railings in Hong Kong
A 27 year old man driving a white Honda Accord suddenly swerves to the opposite lane causing an accident on a road in Kwai Chung. Fortunately, no one was injured. Driving comes with big responsibility. When we drive, we should never forget the traffic rules.

This week’s podcast

We have listeners asking, and we are providing! Taiwan has been a topic that many are curious about, the corporate structure, the “scene”, and other fun facts. So this week, we are delivering. We have with us a guest I met at the Cross Border Matchmaker, Kara Atchison who is an American business woman based in Taiwan.

Want a traditional job working with managing an office or overseeing projects? Administrative jobs in our directory are far and wide reaching. It really depends on your goals, and many of our job posts range from a secretary and administrative assistant all the way up to CEO’s personal assistant.

We need to just get out there and ask for what we want. We want to sit on the sidelines and hope people will see what we are doing and ask us to get involved or give us what we want. Well, that is me most of the time anyway. It is why I love the internet and inbound marketing – people are searching for something, they find it, and then they buy it.

We have another featured member for this week. She’s a Youtuber and a vlogger from Mexico, our member for this week is Mar Rodriguez. Mar is a Mexican Youtuber who has been in China since 2009.
